WOW what a fun story this one was one of my favourite stories with a twist I mean who doesn’t love Robin Hood and his merry men and when Robin becomes Robyn the female and Marion becomes the male then this really called to me and I did very much enjoy it.

This one is filled with lots of adventure and fun as Robyn and her close family and friends’ band together by chance when they are trying to outwit the tax collectors times were tough back then and end up helping the poor with food and some safety and protection against Maudlin the liege Lord and Roger of Doncaster. There is lots of laughter along the way as they become outlaws and as Robyn’s friend, giant Joan and her smash em attitude save Robyn a few times and of course this is a YA romance so to see Marian a wonderful strong blacksmith and the smart Robyn start to notice each other and share a kiss or two along the way as they plan their adventures because they have to have a plan will have you smiling.

MS McKenna has bought the characters to life in a different gender than the original but in such a great way with a lots of action and fun although aimed at the young adult I highly recommend this story to anyone who enjoys a good book that will keep you turning the pages and of course Robyn and Marion will make you smile I loved this one thank you Ms McKenna for a fabulous story.

5/5 stars for a fabulous fun story
